So Good To Be Back in Ireland

I can’t tell you how good it felt to be back in Ireland! Andrew and I were so blessed to have been able to visit in October but to be able to visit again only 7 1/2 months later, all I can say is God is good! After our last trip Andrew was speaking with Sam, (the guy who created BarberCutDublin which Andrew spoke at in October, the reason for our first visit) and after such a great response at BarberCut Sam asked Andrew to come back and teach a […] Read more…

my Tahoe winter dream

Tahoe.  Wow.  I had no idea how much I would love this place.  Growing up I always loved the heat, the summer, the sun and the beach.  I always stayed away from the snow because it was cold and uncomfortable but as I’ve gotten older I’m coming to find that I’m enjoying cold weather more and more.  I had never been in active snowfall before; It was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen.  It was so peaceful and quiet you couldn’t hear a sound you just saw […] Read more…

virginia city

My cousin had asked if Andrew and I would like to join her and her husband Josh on a trip to Tahoe.  They had to go to Reno for a work conference and figured they would extend the trip and drive an hour up the mountain to Lake Tahoe.  We thought, what the heck? We’d never been there before so why not?! The day we got to Reno Britney and Josh were both busy in meetings so we grabbed an Uber and headed up to Virginia City.  We’d heard a […] Read more…

Rainy Day Coffee Date

We aren’t used to actually getting rain during the winter here in SoCal, we’ve been in a pretty intense drought for years, but this winter it’s been raining quite a bit. Hallelujah! The drought has been broken! But being that we aren’t used to rain we also aren’t used to having to stay indoors. So when we caught a break in the rain and the sun came out we jumped at the opportunity to get outside. It was perfect weather for a mid day coffee date.  Shirt By The Light Blonde […] Read more…

Nye wedding bash!

Mallory didn’t just want to get married on New Years Eve and have a traditional wedding she wanted to have an all out NYE bash! Her girls were in glitzy gold dresses and the ceremony was set in front of a wall of pine trees.  She had multiple food trucks and fun dessert options, a caricaturist and lawn games.  She had carefully planned out her wedding to have aspects of a romantic winter wedding and an all night bash. The week before the wedding was filled with rain and a […] Read more…

New Orleans

I’ve never had such conflicting feelings about a trip or city before, and I promise it had nothing to do with the fact that the weekend we were there happened to be one of their coldest all year.  Ill admit it did make me a bit cranky on the coldest of days, “Hair Jam” day, because I had never been in such bone chilling cold before (apparently the humidity makes the cold feel much worse…) but that had nothing to do with my conflicting feelings.  Anyway, I honestly had so […] Read more…

New York, New York

Boy have we been traveling a lot this fall!  We were home from our trip to Ireland and London only one week before we were back on a plane to New York.  Neither I nor Andrew had ever been to New York before and I was so excited because I’ve always wanted to go.  Andrew was asked to speak on a panel at an event about social media in the hair industry called Idealogue that was put on by LBP and American salon.  It was a two day event that […] Read more…

Bree + Sam

Bree’s wedding is one of those rare weddings that completely changed the way I looked at them. She took what I thought only happened in movies and brought it to life. She and her friends rented out multiple houses on the same street in Palm Springs and turned what is only a wedding day for most people into a block party wedding weekend. The morning of her big day all the girls gathered in one house and all the boys in another. The house was buzzing with hair makeup and […] Read more…

Those London Friends of ours

About 2 1/2 years ago Andrew told me a friend from London (whom he had only met on Instagram) was coming to the states and wanted to see if it was cool to let him and his girlfriend stay with us for a few days. Normally Andrew tends to lean a bit towards the “Stranger Danger” side of things so the fact that he was cool with them staying in our home, having never met in person before, told me there must be something special about these two. There was. From the […] Read more…

London Baby!

If Andrew and I were F*R*I*E*N*D*S on their trip to London I would be Joey and Andrew would be Chandler.  Ok so Andrew wasn’t nearly as cranky as Chandler was, but he definitely doesn’t love crowds especially when he’s in foreign surroundings. Me on the other hand, it doesn’t bother me one bit. Exploring London was beyond what I could have expected. Everywhere I turned, every few feet I walked was something new and magnificent to look at. I mean, as small as those red phone booths and the cute […] Read more…
